Flint RNLI are pleased to announce their Fireworks Display 2023 at Flint Castle on the evening of Friday 3 November, to raise funds for Flint RNLI.
The Fairground will open at 6pm, followed by the lighting of the beacon at 7pm. Then the fireworks display is set to take place at 7:15pm.
Entry will cost £5 per adult and £1 per child paid at the entrance.
Tracey Kerfoot, Flint RNLI Fundraising Secretary, said: ‘Flint RNLI volunteers organise Flint town's firework display with a dual purpose of delivering a safe and enjoyable family event that brings the community together, while simultaneously raising crucial funds for Flint Lifeboat Station. These funds are dedicated to supporting crew training and purchasing lifesaving equipment.’
‘We are grateful to our supporters and local business sponsors – Flint Town Council, Tata Steel, Essity, Nice-Pak, Polyroof, Roberts Manufacturing, Treboom Brewery, NR Glaziers, John Dale - Accrol Group, Candid Cards and Parallel Security. The support these sponsors provide enables the funds raised on the night to go directly towards supporting the lifesaving work of Flint RNLI.’
